Buddha was a Saxon

By Pastor Eli James

FROM the on-line Siddhartha Glossary

Sakya (Shakya): derived or descended from the Sakas, from whom the historical Buddha came, whence his honorific Sakymuni. "Sage of the Sakyas." As the major migration of the Sakas and Parthians (Indo-europeans, Mongolians?) to India does not appear to have taken place before the fourth century B.C., the establishment of a tribe of the Sakas in north-eastern India would seem to have been one of the minor infiltrations from the Caucasus in the later part of the second millennium B.C. Their form of government was that by an assembly of elders. Many people of the Sakya tribe followed the Buddha after his enlightenment.

Sakyamuni (Shakyamuni): The author or reviver of Buddhism, whose birth appears to have occurred in the seventh, and death in the sixth century before Christ He was the son of Suddhodama, king of Kapila-Vastu (Kapilavatthu) or of Magadha. He was also called Sakyasimha ("lion of the Sakyas"). The epithet probably originated in Tibet. It was applied to Gotama Siddhartha after he separated himself from his teachers and went to find enlightenment himself. The word "muni" means capability and kindness and refers to a sage.

The Parthians are definitely one of the nations that formed out of the Assyrian Captivity of the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel. Of this there is no historical doubt. The Sakyas or Shakyas are a related people. One can quickly see the similarity of the word Sakya to Saccae or Sakka. The Lost Tribes were referred to as "Saccae" by non-Israelites. They were known by this name due to having had an ancestor named Sakka, or as we know him, Isaac. The Sakka Tribes began forming in 745 B.C. with the first migrations of the Northern House of Israel to Media. The Parthians evolved out of this migration as well. The word "Sakka" is also the root word for the word "Saxons," meaning "Isaac's Sons."

The original high caste Brahmans that brought the India culture to flower were descendants of Abraham's wife, Keturah. The word "Brahman" is taken from Abraham and one or more of the sons of Keturah who were sent away into the east at the death of Abraham; from this genetic branch of Abraham's seed developed the ancient culture of India... These people have always had their own independent religion {Brahman or Hindu} with their own gods {Brahma, Vishnu and Siva}and their own scriptures, known as the Vedas. - Willie Martin

Northern India was originally populated by Aryans of the Tarim Basin (Xinjiang Province of Western Mongolia) who migrated through Tibet or through Afghanistan. These people were Sethites (Adamites or Aryans) who lived in the region in the third Millennium B.C. before Noah's Flood. Recent news reports have revealed the indisputably Caucasian features of their mummies. Contrary to popluar belief, the Flood DID NOT destroy the whole world. It was a local flood with regional consequences.

These original settlers of India were later joined by the Brahmans, who were the descendants of Abraham and Keturah. Abraham had sent Keturah and her sons

away at Sarah's insistence, so they would not compete with Isaac for the birthright. Finally,as the glossary above indicates, as the Parthian Empire expanded into India, they and the Sakka that accompanied them blended in with the original Aryans. Buddha was a descendant of this latest migratory people. The Parthians were actually a branch of the Sakka, who were, in fact, composed of the majority of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

The reason for the confusion in the glossary (Indo-Europeans, Mongolians?) is that the author was probably not aware of the three separate waves of Aryan migration into India. Only the first wave is commonly referred to as ''Aryan,'' but all three groups are White, Adamite Aryans. Once again, the Bible has proven itself to be historically accurate, once both history and the Bible are understood.

The original title by which Buddha was known is Shakyamuni Buddha, which means "SageoftheSakya Clan." From this history and considering the group from which Buddha came, and contrary to all modern depictions of Gautama Buddha, he was a White Man of the migrant Clan of the Sakya (Sakka) of the Ten Lost Tribes.
